Fear, the ugly beast that everyone wishes would stop talking in their ear.
We have been told that if we conquer fear, we can achieve whatever we envision in our minds. However, I have come to realize that success is not the result of the single task of conquering fear, but the enormous task of activating and sustaining action while feeling fear.
We are admonished that we should not let fear conquer our lives, but seldom do people teach us how to believe in our ability to even conquer fear itself. Sometimes the greatest reason we do not succeed is that we are afraid that we cannot. We struggle to believe we are capable of great success.
Imagine a person arriving at a fork in the road and being told to choose one of two paths. Neither of these paths has been traveled before. Unafraid, the person chooses Path A and begins walking forward. Attempting to anticipate what lies ahead, this person is faced with acknowledging the potential obstacles and handling anything that happens on the path. That’s courage. That’s fearlessness in action.
People instruct us to not be afraid to walk along this path, but they do not do enough to highlight the importance of nurturing and strengthening our innate belief(s) about our inner potential.
We are all born with greatness inside of us, and I happen to believe that we have all been born on this earth for purposeful reasons. As a believer in the existence and power of God, I also believe I have great strength within me. Throughout my life, I prayed to God for strength and faith to accomplish meaningful things here on earth. However, recently I have started to think that success is both about what God empowers me to do and my ability to believe what’s already inside me.
In all your efforts to be fearless, do not forsake the often painstaking but critical work to believe in the greatness within you.
Three things you have to believe:
1. Believe that you can be fearless.
2. Believe that you are capable of conquering the unknown along Path A.
3. And finally, believe everything that God and the universe believe about you. Don’t think you are weak when God sees you as great.

Very wise words and thoughts, thank you very much for sharing. This reminds me a a quote by Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can or can’t, either way you are right.” Seems like the logical choice to know that we can 😉 Best wishes for an inspired day!
